And in the Works
After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 2016 with a degree in Neuroscience and Film, I moved to NYC. I spent some time at “entertainment grad school” working at ICM Partners, where I learned about the business under the mentorship of a veteran agent. I then took the leap and began my journey as an actor studying at The Neighborhood Playhouse. I have been represented by WEG Talent for 4 years and was represented by Innovative Artists for 2 years.
I have been writing screenplays for film and TV since 2016. I've had the opportunity to meet with Netflix regarding my work and pitch to them. My screenwriting work has been praised by an Oscar-nominated writer/director, an Emmy Award-winning producer, and legendary talent/literary agent at ICM Partners, Boaty Boatwright.
My body of work includes:
Zero Hour: After a fledgling undercover cop messes up a long-term operation, the hunt for the rat begins. To prove he is capable of making things right, he attempts one final "leap of faith" to try to finish the mission before time runs out.
Buried & Forgotten: An alcoholic with a martyr complex must stay sober for a weekend while going home (after over a year) to see his dying Uncle and religious Muslim family. But as he loses his grip on reality he struggles to grapple with not just deeper childhood traumas, but also new dark revelations of sexual abuse that will test him in this neo-noir tragedy.
The Mirage: A slice of life coming of age drama about a resilient Syrian girl who struggles to preserve her innocence amidst the tough life in a refugee camp while her mother struggles to protect and provide for them.
The Mirage has been ranked as among the top 5% of scripts on Coverfly and ranked in the Top 100 of the 2021 Launch Pad Feature Competition:
As a Director/Producer, and I am currently developing my third proof of concept short film, which will feature 100% practically-shot aerobatic flying stunts.
